The Tallest Man On Earth Fansite

We’re not sure the folks at the First Aid Kit’s¬†Pustervik show in Gothenburg a few days ago have realized how lucky they are, but they surely witnessed a rare and special moment when the opening act, Amanda Hollingby Matsson (aka Idiot Wind), called on stage The Tallest Man On Earth for a duet. And for the special occasion, they picked one of the most rare songs Kristian has ever written, the King Of Spain b-side track “Where I Thought I Met The Angels“. You can watch the video below.

Amanda will be supporting First Aid Kit on the rest of their European tour. All dates here.

Never once an ocean
could hold me on its shore
standing calm with all its motion
with all the movement of its flow
cause I know way back in the distance
all the safer sorrows burned
the ones with no intent to drown you
the ones where nothing’s to be learned

so now i’m headin’ down a back road
the one that no one really takes
except for me now to be nowhere
when that early morning breaks

Now I’m dancin’ with the mad girls
the ones who sin out by the town
who were brought up by bell towers
and always nurtured by its sound
I heard them sing out in their language
already when I was still free
oh God I thought I heard the angels
what kind of fool’d you put in me?

‘Cause now I’m tied up by a back road
the one that no one really takes
except for me now to be nowhere
when that early morning breaks

They sure won’t let me leave this summer
no no no,¬†and they won’t let me go this fall
and with the likelihood of winter
they’ll take the heat out of us all

And now i’m takin’ off the back road, y’know
the one that no one really takes
except for me now to be nowhere
when that early morning breaks
